FMC - FPGA Mezzanine Card

Dual 14-bit 250Msps A/D
Dual 16-bit 800Msps D/A
FMC VITA 57.1 Compliant


  • Description

      The FMC151 is a dual channel ADC and dual channel DAC FMC daughter card. The card provides two 14-bit A/D channels and two 16-bit D/A channels which can be clocked by an internal clock source (optionally locked to an external reference) or an externally supplied sample clock. In addition there is one trigger input for customized sampling control. The FMC151 daughter card is mechanically and electrically compliant to the FMC standard (ANSI/VITA 57.1).

      The FMC151 has a low-pin count connector, front panel I/O, and can be used in a conduction cooled environment. The design is based on TI's ADS62P49 dual channel 14-bit 250Msps ADC and TI's DAC3283 dual channel 16-bit 800Msps D/A. The analog signal inputs are DC coupled connecting to MMCX/SSMC coax connectors on the front panel and the input. The input and output have digitally controlled offset correction.

      The FMC151 allows flexible control on clock source, analog input gain, and offset correction through serial communication busses. Furthermore the card is equipped with power supply and temperature monitoring and offers several power-down modes to switch off unused functions, reducing system level power and heat and is well suited for software defined radio (SDR), battery or other low power source applications. This is ideal for applications such as airborne where power demand effects mission range and on-station mission time.
